Political Correctness, Idiocy and the Attacks on Our republic

The attack on western institutions, traditions and values continues in this country unabated. These attacks are perpetuated by those traitors in our midst who, through the support of a sympathetic media and useful idiots (usually simply ignorant people) in our society, are looking to institute a socialist society here in the United States of America. The transformation is well on its way and continues under the cover of political correctness and just plain stupidity. Socialism is an enemy to freedom, liberty, and prosperity. History has proven that beyond a shadow of a doubt. On the other hand, a limited government instituted exclusively to protect the rights of the people has to been shown as the best way forward to freedom and prosperity. Political correctness, idiocy and a program of indoctrination is the culprit of our ongoing demise.

Let’s begin with the attacks on white “supremacists”. Supposedly hate is bad yet these are people you are allowed to hate. It is ok to hate these people because we are told they are evil. It is politically correct to hate these people because we are told to do so by the media and some of our leaders. We are allowed to espouse and perform violence against these people because of what they supposedly think. How are the thoughts of some people, devoid of any action, infringing on your rights? How does what a person believes injure anyone? It does not. It is political correctness devoid of any reason that is the culprit. It is a campaign to silence anyone who questions the orthodoxy of the left.

More people continue to wake up to this fact. As the insane attacks continue on those people who speak out against the socialist forces attacking our republic, more people are questioning the doctrines of the enemies of America. We used to believe in free speech and freedom of assembly. Now, some in our society have a higher calling – political correctness. This is how republics are destroyed. This is how rights are eliminated and tyranny triumphs.

Robert Lee is an announcer for ESPN who was pulled off the University of Virginia’s game due solely to his name. In a surrender to political correctness, ESPN has taken this step to avoid offending anyone who will be watching the game. An ESPN spokesperson justified the removal of Lee from the announcers spot because ESPN executives “collectively made the decision with Robert to switch games as the tragic events in Charlottesville were unfolding.” More political correctness at work. Again, more pandering to the lowest common denominators of society and those that perpetuate the redefining of America.

Speaking of Charlottesville, it has become known that the attacks on those who were opposing the removal of the Lee statue were perpetuated by government forces who were opposed to the rally in the first place. Did you know that the protestors were denied their constitutionally protected right to peaceably assemble by the Charlottesville government and only through an injunction issued by District Court Judge, Glen Cochran, were the people opposing the removal of the statue allowed to protest and exercise their constitutionally protected rights? The left initiated violence, the police called the assembly “illegal”, withdrew and allowed the violence to escalate. The political correctness movement lead to violence once again.

Political correctness is behind the removal of these confederate statues also.  In my latest article, Civil War Truths, I expose the lie that the War for Southern Independence, a.k.a. The Civil War, was about slavery. It was about economic subjugation by the North. Yet the false narrative of slavery leads to labeling anyone who wants to protect southern heritage and the truth as white “supremacists”, “nationalists”  or the overused term “racists”. This is just more opposition to free speech under the guise of political correctness and a denial of the truth.

Our government continues to bankrupt our nation via the unconstitutional Federal Reserve and illegal expenditures. They continue to support unlawful aggression across the globe under the guise of American safety and being the world’s policeman. Our children continue to be indoctrinated with socialist dogma in our schools. Our federal government completely ignores the law of the land and issues edict after edict under the facade of the Constitution and “helping” Americans. Our government continues to redesign society through its detrimental immigration policies, and on all levels continues to grow and raises taxes to confiscatory levels to pay for that growth. We are traveling down the road to the destruction of our republic and the gift of liberty given to us by previous generations. The only thing that concerns most are trivial matters. It is no wonder our liberties are being trampled and our country transforming into a socialist atrocity.

Make no mistake – without drastic changes to our path, we will see a bloody revolution in our near future. Americans who understand liberty, unalienable rights and the Constitution will only remain peaceful for so long. I do not advocate for violence as a solution, but I see no other alternative if the tenets of political correctness are our guides in this country while the traditional values, laws and ideals are scrapped. We were bequeathed the most precious gift one generation can give to another – liberty. Americans used to understand this. Now many Americans only understand the idea of political correctness and not offending anyone. The lessons we have learned as Americans are disappearing and are being replaced by socialist teachings. Government is the problem. They are not the solution. If Americans continue to be diverted by the inconsequential then we will continue our slide into mediocrity and irrelevance. Patriots, Awake!

Join me at Constitutional Cappuccino to get plugged into a website that is all about the education Americans need to move our country back to its proper trajectory. My new book “Patriot Ammo: The Words Behind Our Flag” is also available and teaches of our founding documents and principles. It is a great tool to repudiate the leftist teachings of tyranny that many have received in schools.

Reconstructing Civil War History

Since the revisionist crowd has hit Orlando and are pushing for the removal of a Confederate Statue from the grounds of Lake Eola citing blatant lies as their reason, I feel it is incumbent on those of us who actually know the history of the war to speak out. The Civil War was not started because of slavery. It had nothing to do with white supremacy or hate. These ideas are ludicrous and those that push this fabrication have no basis in fact. The war had everything to do with the continued economic subjugation of the southern states by the federal government.

Slavery was not the reason for the attack by the North. It is true that some of the southern states did cite maintaining slavery as one of the reasons for their secession, but this truly makes no difference. It does not matter why the South left the Union. They are not the aggressors in this conflict and merely exercised their sovereignty as states to peaceably leave the United States of America. It is the North’s response to this legal action which merits scrutiny.

Slavery was an established practice and supported by law. The Fugitive Slave Acts and the Dred Scott decision both supported the institution of slavery. In the election of 1860, not one of the candidates ran on an abolitionist platform. Far from it. Abolitionists were a very small minority of the people and had little influence.

Lincoln ended up winning the election. Lincoln had plans which were upsetting to the South which had nothing to do with slavery. On the campaign trail. he supported the Supreme Court decision in Dred Scott. He was in ardent opposition to abolition. Lincoln in his first inaugural address stated:

“I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the institution of slavery in the States where it exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so.”

He further stated that if he was to do something then he would be acting against the Constitution in doing so. Lincoln made it crystal clear during this speech that slavery was NOT under attack under his administration. What was under attack was the secession of the states from the Union. He wanted to “save the Union”.

Flashback to 1776. When we declared our independence from Great Britain, we in effect seceded from their influence. Secession was recognized as a right of any state or group of people who felt they were not being governed correctly by those in power. This was one of our founding principles.

“That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government”

“But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security”

No one disputed the right of the sovereign southern states to secede until Lincoln came along. The voluntary union that the states had created by the Constitution had no qualms about secession. Talks of secession had been bandied around for a few decades before the issue resurfaced in the 1860’s. These cries for secession came from the northern states in most instances. No one had any legal or moral problems with the action. Why should they? Our country was formed by a voluntary agreement between the sovereign state to form this nation. The states made the decision on their own to be part of the country.  It was a voluntary act and could be reversed if necessary.

Why Did the North Attack? This had everything to do with Abraham Lincoln and his support of Henry Clay’s “American System”. This was the agenda that was pushed by Lincoln throughout his political career and was the main plank of the Whig Party. This system was about unconstitutional government sponsorship of internal improvements, a centralized federal bank and protective tariffs to fund it all. This is also where the idea of the United States of America becoming the world policeman got its start. This system protected northern industry while invoking high tariffs on exports by the South. It protected northern interests at the cost of southern solvency. By the 1860’s, the South accounted for over 70% of the tax revenue that the federal government took in. In contrast, the high majority of money spent on internal improvements were spent in the north. The south was the loser in this unconstitutional system and the main reason they left the union. This is very similar to the merchantile system set up by Great Britain that led to the colonies revolting.

This was not the first time that southern states had threatened secession. In 1828 a tariff was passed that became know as the ‘Tariff of Abominations”. It was so unpopular that in South Carolina secession was openly talked about and the tariff was nullified by the state legislature. A compromise was finally reached but the problem still festered.

These tariffs were also the reason that the South needed to be forced to stay in the union and why Lincoln attacked. Without the southern states the USA would have gone bankrupt or the American System would have had to been done away with. Instead Lincoln chose to conduct THE most bloody war in American history.  It was all about money, influence and a departure from constitutional values. Lincoln proved during the war he had no love of the Constitution. It should be no surprise that he opposed the legal secession of the southern states.

The out of control government we see today is directly tied to the illegal war waged by Lincoln and his supporters. He was the one who initially took us away from the Constitution and its promise of a limited government of enumerated powers. Lincoln’s actions during the war prove beyond a shadow of a doubt his disdain for the Constitution and the ideals it espouses.

How many know that Lincoln suspended habeus corpus and jailed 1000’s of people in the north without charging them with a crime? How many know that the “war” against the south was never declared by Congress? How many know that he nationalized the railroads? Or his deportation of a sitting congressman from Ohio for opposing his war stance? How about his imprisonment of newspaper publishers who were opposed to his policies? Or his conscription of newly “freed” blacks to serve in the military against their will? Ever heard of the American Colonization Society and its aim to deport all newly freed black slaves out of the country? How about Lincoln’s statement on the proper relationship between whites and blacks?

“I have no purpose to introduce political and social equality between the white and black races. There is physical difference between the two which, in my judgment, will probably forever forbid their living together upon the footing of perfect equality, and inasmuch as it becomes a necessity that there must be a difference, I, as well as Judge Douglas, am in favor of the race to which I belong having the superior position.”

This is who the ignorant are defending when they attack the confederacy and support the actions of the north during the War Between the States. The mental gymnastics required to support this position cannot exist when the truth is revealed. The lie of slavery being the cause of the Civil War is easily revealed yet it is still pushed by the ignorant.

On this Memorial Day in 2017 I am amazed that some think to attack American servicemen by improperly segregating the Confederate serviceman from his rightful place in our history books. These men and women died for our country and have been since recognized as American veterans. Confederate soldiers are buried in Arlington National Cemetery. Yet here in Orlando thanks to Mayor John Dyer, “Buddy” to some, these servicemen are being ostracized by his attacks on a memorial which honors those that died in service to their country. The Mayor has being touted for the presidency of University of Central Florida. How can a person who supports the revision of history and opposes recognizing the truth about the War Between the States have any position in an educational institution? His political pandering and repudiation of the truth makes him unfit for the position. His stance on this matter will not be forgotten.

The program we see today of erasing the history of the confederacy plays into the anti-American agenda. Diverting the conversation away from the illegal war and its hostility to our Constitution is what these actions against history are based. We have people who are attacking the history, traditions and institutions of this country to subvert our way of life here in the United States. Reducing the War for Southern Independence to slavery is simplistic and false but is required to move the un-American agenda of the radical left forward. Instead of identifying Lincoln as the fraud he is, the man who trashed our Constitution and set us on the path of tyranny, many instead praise him for “ending slavery” while ignoring any of the facts of the matter. The utter void of truth that is spoken about the Confederacy and what it stood for is nothing new. Neither is the contempt of those on the radical left for destroying the freedom we enjoy in this country in the name of “progress”.
